Pipas Conectadas merges art and technology to transform the kite fighting of Rio de Janeiro’s favelas into a digital-physical platform that seeks to create new pathways for connection and communication across economic boundaries. What are today’s opportunities for designers to intersect with culture and have a positive social impact? How can technology platforms support inclusion and connection? How can we foster a more interesting world where everyone can play the game? This talk will share the process of designing, developing, and executing Pipas Conectadas in the favelas of Rio and explore how designers can intersect with cultures across the globe, support inclusion, and ultimately have a positive social impact with their work.
